WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 2, 2024) – The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced the launch of the Coastal Resilience Dashboard, which displays the conservation impacts from projects funded by the National Coastal Resilience Fund, the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program and the Emergency Coastal Resilience Fund

The Coastal Resilience Dashboard is a valuable tool for visualizing NFWF’s impact on coastal communities and vital habitats across the U.S. by tracking ecological and socioeconomic outcomes of projects and programs. The dashboard displays data such as acres restored, fish-passage barriers removed, jobs created, properties protected, and the number of underserved communities directly engaged and impacted from grants. 

“The Coastal Resilience Dashboard provides a critical window into the conservation benefits achieved through NFWF’s coastal resilience initiatives,” said NFWF’s Chief Conservation Officer Holly Bamford. “By showcasing the restoration of vital habitats and the positive impacts on coastal communities, this tool enhances transparency, facilitates data-driven decision-making, and supports the ongoing success of our investments in coastal resilience.” 

The dashboard offers the public the opportunity to engage in an interactive way with the current conservation impacts of NFWF’s coastal resilience grants. Users can analyze the investments made in specific areas, and for conservation impacts of specific grants and programs. The dashboard will be regularly updated as data becomes available and new projects are added. 

The Coastal Resilience Dashboard was developed in partnership with Industrial Economics, Incorporated (IEc).
